Hidden Gems Call for Applications Autumn 2020

The Hidden Gems International spouse programme is looking for its new gems to take part in the Autumn 2020 semester. Are you our next hidden gem participant?

Starting in September 2020, the next Hidden Gems participants will begin their journey into the Finnish society. For a period of four months (September-December), we commit to provide services related to networking, mentoring and professional development and career planning. The programme is designed to empower the spouses in their integration into the Finnish society as well as give them the tools to become the actors of their own success.

The programme is open to international spouses whose partners work in one of the Tampere universities or private companies in Tampere region.

A group of +/- 20 participants is about to begin, will you be one of our hidden gems?

The Hidden Gems team invites you to reach your full potential in Finland! Register here.

We will keep the selected participants informed in case we need to change these dates or procedures due to COVID-19.
